Is there any way to be notified by email if a new show by a certain artist is added to the collection? I tried finding the answer to this question before posting but I had no luck.

cheers,

Each artist collection has an RSS feed associated with it that you can use - either as a Live Bookmark in your web browser or with the RSS reader of your choice. That's probably the closest you can get at present...

Get a news feed reader (my favorite is Google Reader, and it is free: http://www.google.com/reader/view/# )

and then on the bands you want to 'track', just go to their collection page, ex:

http://www.archive.org/details/JakeShimabukuro

and in the upper right corner of your URL bar will be an orange button. click that and it will ask you if you want to add the RSS feed to your google reader.

or you can just copy / paste the RSS address into any feed reader:

http://www.archive.org/services/collection-rss.php?collection=JakeShimabukuro

(it is the RSS button to the right of the words 'see recent additions for this artist')

let us know if you need more help! more info on readers / RSS etc here:
